    I was able to drill a small hole up through the cylinder-shaped chamber leading to the ear piece and then epoxied a metal screw into the broken area. Worked for me

The same happened to me. JBL says that repair services are not available for this product according to their website. Their suggestion is to buy a new pair!!!!!. What a shame. JBL products are quite good but the post service is ****.

After this happened to me, it felt like a real shame to throw these out when the drivers were still perfectly good. So I bought a pair of cheap 40mm headphones and transplanted the JBL 410's drivers into them. The fit was perfect and I can continue to enjoy that beautiful, bass-heavy sound.
I would think that any pair of 40mm headphones where the cable goes into each side should work. I swapped them into a Zumreed ZHP-005 knock-off for less than $15, and I'm sure there a lot of options out there for that price or less. If you've got some soldering skills, you could probably get the JBL 410 drivers to work with headphones where the cable is on one side (like the Urbanears Plattan, Panasonic RP-HTX7, etc).

How to open earpiece of UrbanEars Medis earbud

I have a pair of marshall minor headphones. They are essentially the same headphones, very similar design if not identical. I had a short occur just where the cable enters into the ear piece, i was devastated when this happened. they are a good pair of headphones and i didn't want to have to shell out on another pair.
To open the earpiece, i first removed the silicone ear-click thingy. if you look in the recessed space where this fits, you will notice a clear join between the two pieces of plastic. I inserted a razor blade into this join and after very little effort i managed to separate the two halves. In doing so i actually poked the back plate off as well, i did actually try to get this off but didn't trust myself enough with the razor blade to continue.
there is another layer of plastic covering the circuit board in the ear piece, which again i would attempt to remove via the recess where the silicone ear-click piece goes. i only had a short in the cable so i didn't go as far as getting to the circuit board.
the whole earpiece consists of at least four main pieces of plastic which are held together by a series of plastic pins. with a little Araldite/ strong superglue you would never know i had opened the earpiece.
i can't believe there is nothing online about fixing these headphones. it's a shame, they are good headphones which have now been saved from the bin.

You may want to return it to the store as soon as possible, before your warranty runs out to get a new pair. It seems to me that there was a problem with them at the factory in which they were produced.

Plastic connecting left headshell broke apart

If the tape holds it in place then I suggest a good brand of superglue might hold on for a time. The only other cause of action I can suggest is visiting a Pioneer service center and seeing if the part is still made.
If all else fails have a look at the bottom of my tip on repairing dodgy cables and plugs, there is a suggestion on what to do with a broken headshell.

Plastic piece broke on headphone where wire comes out too hold the headphone on the head band part. can i buy the small piece because it cracked headphone is the Ear Force X-52 5.1

If the headphones are expensive, you might be able to buy the piece from the manufacturer or possibly even through an ebay or "froogle" search ( ).

If you can't do that, your main options are super-glue or fabricating something. I've sometimes had luck doing that, but if the area of contact for the super-glue is small and irregular, it may not be able to be repaired reasonably and cleanly. Of course, if you don't mind appearance and it being fragile, sometimes clever applications of cloth and electrical tape can go a long way.

You might try using two part epoxy. It comes in two tubes and you follow directions to mix one drop of each together to make the epoxy to use to glue the parts together. For best results the parts glued together shouldn't be disturbed for 24 hours. I have used the Locktite brand with good sucess.
